Welcome to another week of daily threads on Europe's war. Updated throughout the day (and night) every single day.

It's Day 481 of #Russia's illegal full invasion of #Ukraine.

To review Sunday's thread, click here.
I tempted fate by saying I was hoping for sleep. Soon enough alarms were sounding in the south of #Ukraine.

Suspected cruise missiles launched from #Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and #Odesa has reported explosions. Hopefully it's just air defence.

Good news is just coming in from #Odesa (RU: #Odessa) where it seems to be quiet now.

There were reported to be three targets - all three may have been shot down. I'm not hearing of damage yet.

The demolished neighborhood of the leather makers along the historical aqueduct in old #Cairo, with the new ‘development’ in the background #Egypt ImageImageImageImage
Walking through the still standing part of the old neighbourhood was surreal: A wall cuts right through it, behind which the new luxury apartments have been built or are under construction. Old & new, poor & rich, right next to each other but separated by a wall
Residents of the old part were vocal about their anger about the project and the gov. They couldn't comprehend how these kinds of luxury projects are being executed amid soaring inflation and them struggling to make ends meet #Egypt

The American Jewish Congress released a statement on May 8, 2023 on Bashar Al Assad rejoining the Arab League. This is a good time to recall why this is not a good idea after #Assad attended an Arab Summit in #SaudiArabia over the weekend. Read this #thread⬇️/1

The #AmericanJewishCongress is alarmed that efforts are underway to rehabilitate #BasharAssad. Before any normalization, Assad needs to talk to the opposition, eliminate #Iran presence in #Syria, and initiate a political transition in accordance with UNSCR 2254. /2
Sharing our concerns about rehabilitating #BasharAlAssad is more than half of Syria’s population displaced by #Assad’s actions over the past decade, says @JackRosenNYC, President of #AmericanJewishCongress. /3

#Israel launched 31 missiles to assassinate 12 Palestinians in #Gaza, of which 9 civilians (including children and women) and 3 Islamic Jihad commanders. 20 other civilians were injured. @netanyahu is trying to trigger a war to divert attention from his domestic crisis. ImageImage
#Israel asked all the settlers around #Gaza to reach nearby shelters, expecting a retaliation to the Israeli assassination.

The Palestinian resistance groups are expected to unite against Israeli aggression after the funerals.
The Islamic Jihad was expected to send a delegation to #Egypt this morning. #Israel was informed about the coordinated trip and carried out its assassination act.

The battle is expected to start today after the funerals and last several days.

#Sudan Update - 2nd May 2023
With no signs of conflict resolution, Sudan might head into another civil war which is not at all required right now.
#Sudan #USA #Russia #Egypt #Chad #Ethopia…
1. on 22nd April Kober prison, where former Sudanese president al-Bashir is detained, was attacked by RSF. As per the reports former Sudanese President Al-Bashir has escaped from the prison. Now that is big news and it might be a big problem in the forthcoming months for SAF……
2. AS a public secret, western governments and media have accused Wagner PMCs of plundering the gold reserves of Sudan triggering the armed conflict between Sudanese factions.
As usual, a typical media subversion to deflect attention from the US Biolab crisis.

American Jewish Congress encourages #Sudan leaders to take up #Israel mediation offer |

This is a #thread on the statement by @JackRosenNYC encouraging @aftaburhan and @RSFSudan to accept @elicoh1's peace plan, while welcoming efforts by the #US #Egypt #SaudiArabia #UAE. /1
“The situation in Africa’s 3rd largest country #Sudan is a matter of concern for the #US & regional heavyweights #Egypt #KSA #UAE who are trying to broker a ceasefire. #Israel has now offered to host the two warring generals in Israel to mediate permanent peace." @JackRosenNYC /2
"#Israel officials are in contact for several days now with #Sudan Army chief Gen Abdul Fattah al-Burhan & Rapid Support Forces (RSF) head Gen Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo — known as Hemedti. Contacts between 🇮🇱officials and the two 🇸🇩 generals have been direct and through messages." /3

In five years, #JoeBiden will likely get the #NobelPeacePrize. But not because he did anything proactively for peace.

It is because a #Multipolar World will be more peaceful than a unipolar one, and Biden has done more than anyone else (albeit unwittingly) to further that. (1/n)
The US-led #sanctions against #Russia in response to the #UkraineRussiaWar have forced countries around the world to abandon the US dollar as a medium of trade. This is forcing the rest of the world (non-West) together. Banning Russia from #swift was most important in this. (2/n)
#India and #China desperately need oil. Because of sanctions, Russia is providing oil at cheap rates to both. Russia has now become India's largest source of oil, displacing Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Chinese imports of Russian oil have also zoomed upwards. (3/n)

#Israel is mediating between the 2 Sudanese generals to reach a ceasefire, like asking the mouse to protect a piece of cheese. Where are #Africa leaders to intervene and prevent any non-African mediation?

Both generals will stop once one defeats the other = destroying #Sudan.
Hemedti met with Mossad several times, and Al-Burhan met with Netanyahu in Uganda. It is not in #Israel's interest to see #Sudan stable.
No ceasefire is expected to hold for long. The battle in Khartoum is over the airport, the presidential palace and the general HQ. People r caught and want to leave the city (5-6 million inhabitants) to safer areas. The medical system is collapsing, and bodies are in the street.

The Continuing Regional Rapprochement of #Syria and #Assad

A thread 🪡

1/25 Image
In January I wrote about how, after over 10 years of brutal war pushed and funded by outside powers, the #MiddleEast was accepting that the #Syrian Arab Republic, led by #Assad would stay in power.…

The #USA and #NATO countries have been unhappy about things turning out this way, especially as #Syria is a close ally of #Russia. However, the Muslim states of the region are seeing that the future is cooperation, and that the SAR has won the war.

Day 419 of the war in Europe.
#Russia's illegal war & full invasion of #Ukraine.
The day Bunker Boy emerged from his Kremlin bunker!

Yesterday was very interesting with Wagner troops confessing war crimes, more Russian fires, collaborators + more, here⬇️

The scale of the war is difficult to comprehend for those living far away. But @SkyNews brings it to life with this report.

15% (381) of all education establishments in #Ukraine have been damaged or destroyed by #Russia in the first year.
#Russia's President Putin (or at least a lookalike) has appeared in #Ukraine's Occupied Territories.

He is said to have flown into #Kherson region to visit the "Dnepr" Command of troops and then taken a helicopter to the "East" Command in #Luhansk.

The framing of the #Sudan current conflict as a proxywar between the #UAE backed #RSF & #Egypt backed #SAF is not only wrong, but one of the dumbest misinformed takes one could have about this situation. Rivalled only by the take that supporting the Generals wud lead to democracy
First off:
-the UAE doesnt back the #RSF over the Sudan military. They back both, but will always lean to the side of institutions (The Army) when push comes to shove, and has been for the past 6 months. Same with Saudi.

Currently the #RSF stands alone.
The #SAF is not only backed by is also backed by the Gulf, the EU and the US. The western powers specifically will never back the #RSF or Hamedti given his history of ethnic cleansing in Darfur, & especially after his collaboration with #Russia got exposed.

The Grand #Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (#GERD).

A thread.
If you happen to look at the news in the last couple of weeks about it, you will find a lot.👇

For the casual reader, what these news articles Don't tell you WHY exactly #Egypt and #Ethiopia are locked in these bitter disagreements over the #Nile water use via the #GERD.
Quick background:

The #Nile river is shared by 11 countries. Of its total annual flow contribution, #Ethiopian rivers including #Abbay (Blue Nile) that #GERD is being built accounts 85% or ~77 Billion Cubic Meters (BCM). The rest of the Nile countries accounts ~15%.

👀💭 According to recent research, there is evidence of a 4th #Pyramid which was said to be dismantled in 1759, & it took 10 months. This pyramid would have been different from the others, around 100 ft smaller than the others and apparently had a cube on top. #Archaeology #Giza
👀💭 P1: A 4th great #Pyramid of #Giza in the 1700's was documented & sketched along with the 3 that we know about today by a Danish naval captain. It may now finally have been found by a space outside the #Menkaure enclosure. #Archeology #lost4thpyramid #Egyptology #Egypt
👀💭 P2: This so called tomb is located on the #Giza Plateau, which is believed by some #Egyptologists to be a 4th #Pyramid of Giza. It was identified as a pyramid by John Shae Perring & Colonel Howard Vyse who visited the site in 1837–1838. #Archaeology #Megalithic #Ancient

#Assad's regime, its supporters & a plethora of uninformed commentators are driving a call for punitive sanctions on the regime to be removed to facilitate aid delivery to #Syria.

This is absolute nonsense.

It has no basis in facts.

It's nothing but a regime talking point.
Let’s start with some facts:

- 90% of the multi-billion dollar aid effort that goes through #Damascus comes from the U.S, U.K, E.U. & #Canada -- who also happen to be the x4 sanctioning entities.

In all cases, humanitarian waivers are in place to ensure the free flow of aid.
The West has consistently funded & backed the free-flow of aid across all of #Syria & its *our* money that's paid for it.

It’s #Assad's regime that has systematically weaponized aid since 2011 -- diverting it away from opposition communities as part of its siege & starve agenda.

How ISLAMIZATION occurs when
there are sufficient MUSLIMS in a country.... #Thread

When culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable'
Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under
the table. Here's how it works...👇🏻👇🏻 Image
📍 As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will
be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.

(#UnitedStates --1.0%; #Australia --1.5%; #Canada --1.9%; #China --1%-2%; #Italy --1.5%;
#Norway --1.8%)
📍 At 2% and 3% Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected
groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

(#Denmark --2%;
#Germany --3.7%; #UnitedKingdom --2.7%; #Spain --4%; #Thailand --4.6%)
